With a new single-game 7DAYS EuroCup scoring record for this decade and a game-winning three-pointer that helped his team clinch home-court advantage in the upcoming eighthfinals, Anthony Cowan of Promitheas Patras earned his second consecutive MVP of the Round honor this week. His performance index rating of 38 was the EuroCup's best in Round 17. Cowan poured in 38 points in a crucial 84-81 victory over visiting Paris Basketball, marking the EuroCup's highest individual scoring total in five years, since Scottie Wilbekin scored 42 for Darussafaka in Game 2 of the 2018 semifinals against FC Bayern Munich. Cowan made 6 of 8 three-pointers and 10 of 10 free throws to go with 6 assists in less than 30 minutes on the floor. His scoring total and free throws made were both club records.
